Southern Comfort Gallery (SOCO) is a contemporary art gallery and bookshop in Charlotte, North Carolina. Founded in 2015 by Chandra Johnson, the women-owned and run space strives to bring museum-quality artists and artwork to their local community and lead the conversation in the Southeast in contemporary art. SOCO Gallery regularly exhibits regional emerging talent and is proud of their connection to the national and international art world. Located in a renovated 1920’s bungalow in historic Myers Park, SOCO Gallery provides a thoughtful platform for contemporary art to be experienced, discussed, and acquired. The gallery specializes in assisting private collectors, institutions, and corporations to build their collections with artworks from emerging to mid-career artists. Community engagement and education are central to the mission of the gallery, regularly presenting artist talks and seminars with each exhibition. In June of 2021, SOCO opened SOCO Annex, a space adjacent to the gallery which allows for dual exhibition programming as well as performances and installations. SOCO Gallery is a member of New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) and has been featured in Artsy, Surface, Cultured Magazine, Vogue, Forbes, and Architectural Digest, among others. The gallery regularly participates in national art fairs such as Dallas Art Fair, The Armory Show, and NADA Miami.
